Event description

The Geneva Briefing on Internet Governance takes place on the first Tuesday of every month. If you would like to get a regular ‘zoomed-out’ update of the major global IG and digital policies developments, join us online for our next webinar briefing from Geneva, part of the Geneva Internet Platform project, on Tuesday, 4 November, at 12:00 UTC/GMT (13:00 CET). If you are in Geneva, join us in situ; if you are somewhere else, join us online.

You receive hundreds of pieces of information on digital politics.
We receive them, too.
We decode, contextualise, and analyse them.
Then we summarise them for you.

Join us once a month for a round-up of the main IG-related events and developments. Every month, we look back at what happened and look ahead to what’s to come.
